What is an MRI Scan?
MRI or magnetic resonance imaging is a test which is used frequently for assessing the situation of organs and tissues in the human body. MRI is based on magnetic field interacting with the water molecules in the body. It hence produces the images of the parts where water is available including the brain, inner parts of the spine, joints and many more areas.
Generally, MRI is like a hollow tube. On one end of the machine is a slab for the patient to lie on. The slab then moves inside the machine taking the patient in. Since this machine is closed, the patients who are afraid of closed spaces find it very difficult to get this test done. Open MRI machines provide a solution to this problem.
What is an Open MRI Machine?
An Open MRI machine is open from three sides. People who are afraid of closed spaces (claustrophobia) can get the MRI test done without anxiety in an open MRI machine. In some kinds of open MRI machines, heavyweight patients can be tested which is sometimes not possible in a closed MRI machine.
While Open MRI machines have their advantages, some people feel that the image quality of the Open MRI machine is lower than the regular MRI machine.
Open MRI machines in Delhi / Gurgaon are .2 Tesla to 0.5 Tesla in magnetic strength while closed MRI machines are 1.5 Tesla or 3 Tesla in magnetic strength.
Open Standing MRI in Delhi NCR
In an Open Standing MRI machine, a patient can get the MRI done standing up or sitting down. There are three key advantages of the open standing MRI
- It helps reduce the anxiety of the patients who have a fear of closed places as it is open from three sides.
- For overweight patients who can not enter the closed MRI, standing MRI offers a good alternative.
- In MRI of spine, knee or leg, open standing MRI may be better than the closed MRI. This is because, in a standing position, spine, knee or leg are under the natural pressure of gravity. Images are better in the standing position than lying down.
We have two centers in our panel in Delhi which have open standing MRI machines – Kohli Imaging in East of Kailash has 0.25-Tesla open standing MRI machine. Mahajan Imaging in Hauz Khas has 0.5-Tesla machine.
The disadvantage of open standing MRI are two-fold – a) magnetic field used is lower than the fields used in closed machines. b) MRI Brain or Head cannot be done in a standing MRI.
